Our Original Jurassic Sand was first discovered in the Southwest US in 1992 by two geologists- Jerry Bergosh (aka the Jurassic Sandman) and his business partner Tom. They spent the winter of 1991 exploring the canyons and deserts of the West for the beautiful orangy-red sand you are using today.
The discovery of dinosaur footprints in the rock formation that the sand comes from gave The Sandman geologist the biggest clue to the age of this layer of rock. The trackway (as Dinosaur footprints are known as) were from two Jurassic-aged plant eating Dino's that had walked through the mud flats surrounding a swampy area.Geologists use clues like this to 'tell time'. Since the trackway was in the Navajo Sandstone formation we can conclude with good certainty that it is about 200 million years old.
The final part of the story shows how geology works to shape the Earth. Millions of years of exposure to wind and water is slowly eroding the sandstone mountain grain by grain. Solid rock reduced to trillions of sand grains shaped round by the wind, and blown into spectacular Sahara desert-like sand dunes. It is from these sand dunes that our Original Jurassic Sand is collect from shovel full by shovel full. The best part is we follow that recommendation to 'Tread lightly and leave no trace'. Within weeks there is no trace we were ever there - the wind has completely filled where we dug with newly eroded sand grains. And so the geologic cycle continues Eon after Eon.
